Start Anew with Same-Day Crowns in East Hanover, NJ
Same-day crowns for teeth are the most convenient option for teeth restoration. You won’t need a temporary crown or have to wait weeks for the permanent one to be returned from the lab. Also, you just have one dentist visit.
Additionally, you will enjoy increased comfort. If you’re concerned about discomfort and crowning teeth, remember that same-day crowns require fewer injections than traditional crowns. In addition, your dentist can create a crown model using a computer scanner instead of the unpleasant impression putty.
Our dentists are able to produce and insert a dental crown that is permanent in just one visit thanks to the innovative 3D printing technology. It is more effective, in addition to being simpler and quicker.
3D printing has revolutionized the restorative process. It is utilized with the patient in mind in order to make a visit to the dentist as pain-free as possible. Some of the benefits of using 3D printing are:
- Most procedures can be done in one visit – less costly and less time-consuming
- Less painful injections due to single-visit
- No need to take messy impressions
- No need to have a temporary restoration for in-between visits
- Ability to save as much natural tooth structure as possible
- Longer lasting restorations – may last over 10 years
- Restores teeth to natural beauty, function, and strength
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used when a tooth has a very large filling that exceeds the natural tooth structure, your tooth had root canal therapy, or for cosmetic reasons. Dental crowns have many applications. The first is to be installed over a damaged tooth to cap the existing structure, which restores the damaged tooth so it can be used normally. Crowns can also be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth; these implants will be surgically inserted into the jawbone and serve as the root for the tooth. This procedure keeps the crown steady and secure.
Additionally, dental crowns may also be used to provide extra support for dental bridges. They do not require any special treatment and can be brushed and flossed as normal.
How does a 3D printed dental crown restoration procedure work?
A 3D printed dental crown restoration procedure involves several steps. First, the dentist prepares the tooth and takes a digital impression using an intraoral scanner. Using specialized software, a digital model of the crown is designed based on the impression. This digital design is then sent to a 3D printer, which creates the crown layer by layer using materials like ceramics or resins. After printing, the crown is refined if needed and then bonded to the prepared tooth using dental cement. This modern approach offers efficient, precise, and customized crown restorations compared to traditional methods.
